today was quite busy..

so today i woke up not feeling quite the best... and i guess the lord knew what i needed to give me a little boost! this morning was rough, i was in yucky mood (so ready for this gloomy weather to pass!!), and the babies seemed to constantly bicker at each other, and sweet little miley, who NEVER makes a sound, was needing some mommy time.. and i just wanted to plug my ears and crawl back in bed!! i was even tempted to stick my babies on the front porch with a sign saying, FOR FREE!! just kidding :) lucky for them, (and me)...i said a little prayer calmed down a bit and was able to have some fun with them this afternoon.. ella kate says the darndest things and makes me laugh so easily:) after they woke up from their nap, the sun somewhat came out, and we were able to go outside and play. we have a ginormous swingset in the back, that my amazing hubby and bro-in law set up last year, but we recently had some trees cut down, and the back yard is atrocious!! so i grabbed a baby doll stroller, some sidewalk chalk and ek's new dora bike and we headed out the front door to play in the driveway! we drew a few scribbles and ek, jos and baby reindeer went to wal-mart and went 'shoppin' at the star'.. it was so cute! josiah apparently pooped b/c i heard ek say, "SHOOO-EEEE 'siah! you stink!!" that was his 3rd one of the day! (and that is normal! ) they were having the most fun playing together.. until a train came!!! we live right infront of some railroad tracks and that thing is SUPER loud if you are outside. and sure enough ella kate had a COW when it tooted his whistle! josiah kept on playing like nothing was going on.. but ek had huge crocodile tears and all. i tried to tell her that the train was nice, and was going bye-bye... that it wouldn't hurt her. it was almost immediately that she took ownership of that thing! soon after... it was ELLA KATE'S choo -choo! she told me that it was sweet and it was pink! then, she was fine! so next time that we are outside and the train comes, i will have to remind her that it is just her sweet, pink choo- choo that is going bye bye!after we played, we came inside to eat supper. bill has a meeting and wont be home til later, so i didn't cook anything... and was just gonna throw something together! i decided to make a fried bologna sandwich with cheetos and applesauce (yummy huh??) so i handed the babies their sandwiches, only to hear ella kate say,"hmmm.. lets see here.." she picked it up and studied it as if it were a foreign object to her. (we have had these several times before) she took a big bite and said, "yum momma!! my yike it! it's delicious!!" so i replied... "oh yeah?? i am so glad you like it! you are so sweet to be eating your sandwich." "no, momma ella kate's not sweet... my's a big girl!!" so we were going back and forth like this throughout supper. josiah decided to shove his whole sandwich in his mouth and it must have hit his hangy-ball or something b/c he gagged himself!! ella kate looked at him and said, "goodness 'siah, be careful buddy! you gonna choke all day!"
